    Reconciling Communion

    Communion is a sacred, holy space-time because we recognize God's presence in it – God is known in this act, in our coming together. The sacrament of communion is an enactment, a remembering what Jesus did so we are reconciled to God. And it happens in community, our communing together, enacting, remembering that we are continuously reconciling with one another in our relationships. – and here is where the living water does not flow through the cracks: our community is the cup with which we offer that water to all who have need of it. ALL who have need.

    Inked By Love

    Jesus asked Peter, Do you love me? three times. Jesus replied, Feed my sheep. All of them. The unforgivable sin is to not recognize the work of the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ performing God’s work. When I notice a person living in a certain way and judge that lifestyle as contrary to God – whereby ignoring the goodness and Jesus-inspired activity in which the individual is engaged, blind to the fruit of God’s love and peace and provision extended through them . . . Who am I that I could hinder God?!
